Homecoming: Sgt. Hamilton's Long Journey

Sgt. Vernon Hamilton from Monongahela was shot down over Germany during World War II. The plane and remains of the three crew members were declared unrecoverable. Decades later, an excavation and forensics team would bring long-awaited closure to his family. Sgt. Hamilton’s 1943 Monongahela High School ring – discovered at the excavation site – was a key component in identifying his remains.
